If you can't get enough of Archie, Betty, and Veronica, then you'll want to visit this retro Calgary diner. Inside, you'll feel like you're at Pop's because it has epic Riverdale vibes. Just like on the hit CW television show, you'll be able to take a seat at a booth with your friends and sip a creamy milkshake.
Stepping in Galaxy Diner feels like a blast to the past. The old-school eatery has a 1940s theme and serves up all the classic dishes you crave like juicy burgers and all-day breakfast.
Inside, you can't help but notice how similar it feels to Pop's Chock'Lit Shoppe. For example, it too has red banquet seats, jukeboxes on the table, and even glowing neon signs.
There are all the regular options you might expect, like vanilla, chocolate, malted, coffee, and strawberry. Plus, there are some unique options like tiger, coconut, creamsicle, and apple pie.
To make them extra tasty, the chefs use locally made ice cream.
If you are looking for a cute budget-friendly date spot, this place would be perfect. You can grab two straws and split a large for $7.50.
Or if you aren't willing to share, you can each order your own. The regular size is $5.00
Another must-try is their Galaxie burger, which even Jughead would want to scarf down. It is loaded with bacon, mushrooms, cheese, tomatoes, lettuce, onions, and spicy banana peppers.
Or, if breakfast is more your thing then you want to try their popular breakfast burrito or french toast. Both come with endless hash browns and toast, so expect to leave stuffed.
This local gem is open Monday to Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. On Saturdays and Sundays, it remains open an extra hour and closes at 4:00 p.m.
Address: 1413 11 St. SW., Calgary, AB
